National Competency Standards for the Audiology profession welcomed by Victorian Hearing

Dec 31, 2021

When an independent and locally owned hearing care practice grows from one clinic in Clayton to include 8 locations across Victoria, ensuring consistency of practice and experience across all those sites becomes a focus when your standards are as high as ours! Victorian Hearing have always embedded a culture of thorough and evidence based practice and had zero tolerance policy when it comes to cutting corners.

Our reputation has been built on our strong foundation of clinical excellence. This comes from having clear protocols and standards in place for our clinicians, whether its performing services. We believe our clients deserve the very best, and this is one of the reasons we are so pleased that our professional body has released the National Competency Standards. The standards set a baseline for audiology in the areas of:

  • Audiological clinical practice
  • Professional communications and collaborations
  • Education and lifelong learning
  • Quality, safety, and compliance
  • Ethical and professional behaviour
  • Advocacy

We have always considered our practice to be of the highest standard and having a nationally accepted set of baseline standards enables us to see just how our standards sit above the required levels.

“I’m so proud to work with such an ethical, professional and thorough team of Audiologists” says Nicole Bowden, Manager and Principal Audiologist at Victorian Hearing.

“Our clients receiving the highest standard of hearing care across all of our eight locations is very important to me, and something we have worked extremely hard to ensure. I want our clients to feel confident in our highly professional clinical team, and know they are getting the best hearing care possible. It is reassuring that the bar has been set across the industry, and this will hopefully serve to increase hearing help seeking and better outcomes for everyone experiencing hearing loss.”
